iTHES FY2014 started !
Welcome to the first issue of the iTHES Newsletter in FY2014.
Since iTHES researchers are the real core of our iTHES Research
Group (http://www.riken.jp/en/research/labs/rg/inter_theor_sci/ ),
I list their names in FY2014 below. Also I would like to announce
that three iTHES researchers in FY2013 have moved to various
places as assistant prof. or research scientist:
Pulak Kumar Ghosh (-> Assistant Prof., Presidency Univ., India),
Konstantin Bliokh (-> Research Scientist, RIKEN),
Norihiro Iizuka (-> Assistant Prof., Osaka Univ.).
Congratulations, Pulak, Konstantin and Norihiro, and please keep
in touch with us as iTHES graduates!

Person of the Week
Hello, this is Nodoka Yamanaka, I am working as a researcher of the iTHES project from april 2014.
I am mainly interested in the nuclear and particle physics, especially in the quantum chromodynamics and in the study of new physics beyond the standard model.
During the PhD course, I studied the phenomenology of the supersymmetry, one of the candidate of new physics beyond the standard model, using the electric dipole moment of various systems, a sensitive observable of the CP violation of new physics.
Last year, I have studied the structure of the nucleon using nonperturbative methods.
Recently, I am interested in the analysis of the electric dipole moment of few-nucleon systems.
I am also interested in the study of the nucleon structure using lattice QCD simulation.
I would be pleased if I could extend the applicability of my work to a wide area of science.
